I actually thought you were deliberatly trying to mention the most hardware-heavy example of an fps when you mentioned Crysis.

They then probably chose the cartoony style because it'll look good in low and high resolutions. People who have played WoW know what I mean. The graphics in the last expansion are FAR better then the original graphics, but because the overall design is cartoony, it all looks 'good.'
I see the logic in what you're saying. However wouldn't it be just as easy for these pc's to run the EXACT SAME graphics from the previous kotor games?
I'd prefer the old style because it's less childish.

Yes, This and the fact that you don't really "control" your characters movements really annoy me when I try mmo combat.

I'll admit I haven't tried this, I might give it a look.

No hostilities here man.

I admit, i feel quite strongly about what (in my mind) could have made this the best game out there but feel a bit disappointed by some of Biowares decisions.

I do like hearing other peoples opinions on this too though.
